After 10+ years of agile development, I've had enough. This stuff is just too damn hard. Hundreds of retrospectives, and we still can't get it right. Middle managers who talk the talk, but don't walk the walk. "Team" members who are more worried about their personal evaluation than the health of the project. Product owners who disappear for weeks at a time.
